Produce to buy at Falkland Centre for Stewardship
Eggs and beef are available from the home farm. Our produce is organic, delicious, no food miles and affordable.
Over the last few years Falkland Estate has been farming organic produce including wheat, barley and oats. Recently we have added a small range of produce to buy directly from us so when you visit the Estate, pop by the office and see what you can have for your tea!
Our eggs are free range and organic. The hens are kept on Falkland Estate in a large open space - you are welcome to go and have a wee chat with them, they like visitors! The eggs are delicious and totally different from supermarket eggs (fantastic for fairy cakes and omelettes).
Beef is from Simmental cross heifers fattened on barley and grass. The Simmental is a hardy continental breed that seems to grow well here at Falkland.
Our offices are open from 9.30am to 6.30pm every week day. Call us on 01337 858544 and place an order if these times aren't suitable (we may even deliver!).
Falkland Estate Orchard
In 2012 a new orchard was planted at Falkland Estate.
This was the first major orchard to be planted in the locale for over a century.
The two acre orchard is made up of four different types of dessert apples and represents a significant financial investment by Falkland Farms aimed at making locally grown fruit available to residents in nearby villages and towns.
Discovery, James Grieve, Red Windsor and Rojka varieties are the types of apples chosen to make up the brand new plantation. These types of apples have been chosen because they all ripen at a range of different times during the season and means that there will be apples available from late August through to the middle of October.
The site chosen for the orchard is close to the cricket club and was previously unused grassland. This area has been handpicked because of its low risk of late frost, giving the trees the best chance of healthy growth and apple crops.
The orchard is expected to come into full crop in 2015/2016.
The new orchard is also seen as part of the evolution of Falkland Estate and its commitment to the production of food from its farmed landscape.
